New Max Update!

So as of this writing, Max has been home with us for about one week. Max fills his days with pooping, sleeping, eating and being adorable. Last night, Chelsa and I got some sleep, after Chelsa figured out that Max likes to sleep with the radio on. We theorize that this is because of his week in the nice but rather noisy hospital.

His last little strand of umbilical cord fell out this morning, which was nice...that thing was getting a bit gross. As we speak, he is napping with his mom, giving me a little time to write this post and update everybody.

Other pieces of Max info: He weighs a little over six pounds right now. He doesn't cry much, and he consumes roughly 300 to 400 ml of breast milk a day. Everyday he feels bigger and looks around at stuff more. Now some updated pics.

This is Max last week in his car-seat coming home from Sactown.

This is Max and Granny about a day after he got home.

This is Max and Grandma Tillman yesterday. Note the cute zebra blanket. No zebras were harmed in the making of this blanket.

This is Max and me yesterday.

And this last one is Max and his Mom.

That's it for now, with more to come later! Maybe even a video if you get lucky.

Thank you for the update. He has changed muchly already. He is reflecting the love and nourishment that he is getting from his mum and dad. Can't wait to see all of you this weekend.
Love Granny

He is getting bigger every day. He is sucking down loads and loads of Chelsa milk. I have not tried Chelsa milk, nor will I.

Max, you look great! It was good to see you last night, thanks for hanging out. I was very impressed that you weren't put off by all of my wombat talk. I know, I know, it's all I talk about. How I love wombat movies, and wombat books, petting wombats, and feeding them. How I work in agriculture. It can be a bit obsessive, but it is a passion I love. Just ask your father - Ok, maybe later when you can talk. When you are a bit older I will give you a wombat to play with.
